[movies]Invasive Species: Tamarisk's Use of Water - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
Experts now estimate that Tamarisk (saltcedar) has infested more than 3.3 million acres in the western United States. Tamarisk is one of our most harmful invasive species because the plant's long roots tap into underground aquifers. Its groundwater-absorbing qualities may be adding to the severity of the drought in the western U.S. NASA and the USGS are working together to develop a National Invasive Species Forecasting System (ISFS) for the management and control of invasive species...

[movies]Mississippi River Watershed - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
This animation illustrates how water flows from the middle of the United States down to the Mississippi River. Much of the nutrients, fertilizers and pollution that impact the health of the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico originate far up stream This sequence begins with a NASA satellite image of the United States. Then, the sequence highlights the Mississippi River. The sequence shows all the tributaries that feed into the Mississippi River...

[movies]Microbes Hitch Ride on African Dust - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
Note: Traveling Dust Animation - The dust comes every year during northern Africa's dry season, when storm activity in the Sahara Desert and Sahel generate clouds of dust. The dust originating from fine particles in the arid topsoil is transported into the atmosphere by winds and may be carried in excess of 10,000 feet high into the atmosphere by easterly trade winds. Typically, it takes one to two weeks for the dust clouds to cross the Atlantic Ocean and reach the continental United States....
